Supreme Court Justice Retires

By 20 July 2020News

Veteran Supreme Court Judge Lord Wilson of Culworth has retired after reaching his 75th birthday.

Lord Nicholas Wilson had served on the Supreme Court for nine years, after a distinguished 40-year legal career as a barrister and judge, including more than a decade sitting in the Family Division of the High Court.

Due to the current pandemic restrictions, his fellow Justices were unable to stage the usual farewell ceremony. Instead Court President Lord Reed recorded a special video paying tribute to his colleague on behalf of Deputy President Lord Hodge and the ten other Justices of the Supreme Court.

Lord Wilson will be succeeded next month by legal academic Andrew Burrows QC.
